Microsoft Buys North San Jose Land, Large Complex Eyed
Microsoft, poised for expansion into north San Jose, has bought 65 acres of empty land along State Route 237 between Alviso and Milpitas, signaling that the site fits into its plans to widen its reach in cloud and internet technologies.
The Redmond, Washington-based tech titan paid $73.2 million for the land on the western banks of the Coyote River, in a location where some tech campuses have begun to sprout.
“We continuously explore opportunities to meet the needs of a future based on cloud computing and internet services, so we’re thrilled to find a great one in the heart of Silicon Valley,” said Christian Belady, general manager of Microsoft Cloud Infrastructure and Operations, referring to Microsoft’s north San Jose land purchase.
